Jeremy Corbyn has responded to President Trump’s call for more troops in Afghanistan, saying:
‘The war in Afghanistan has failed. After 16 years of bloodshed and destruction, the Taliban are undefeated and terrorism is no less of a threat at home. In fact it has spread’.
‘The British Government should make clear to Donald Trump that his strategy of more bombing and a new troop surge will continue this failure, not obediently applaud his latest policy U-turn’.
These comments come after President Trump gave a speech saying:
‘We will ask our Nato allies and global partners to support our new strategy with additional troop and funding increases in line with our own – we are confident they will’.
